Black and White Challenge: An Apron

Spring cleaning sometimes unearths some interesting things...this year I found this single log cabin block-a leftover from a black and white sampler quilt I made in the early '90s and a piece of "cow" fabric that I had used to recover the desk chairs in the boys' rooms about 5 years ago (have staple gun, will create!).

Hmm, what to do with them...well seeing all these beautiful aprons on lots of blogs, I decided to try my hand at one . Now, I have never sewn clothes, only quilts, so this was a bigger challenge for me than you might think- which with the b & w block and the b & w fabric made it perfect for the B&W Challenge!

And I couldn't resist naming it: Home At the Range :)
Not too shabby, I think :)

Your apron came out great, Miri. I've been thinking about aprons lately. It seems like a fun thing to make. The only one in my home that wears an apron is my son (the serious cook in the family.) If I make some, maybe more of us will wear them! Better for the laundry, LOL!

what a clever idea! I love it.. especially the yellow trim. :-)

Oh that apron is lovely, well done you for re-cycling this left over material. My sister lives in Bungendore, outside Canberra and is a super quilter. So I was drawn to your blog (from Bea's I think). Lovely stuff.
